Land Advisors Organization has named Brent Long as President.
Long is a 30-year veteran of the commercial real estate industry that includes brokerage, investment and technology. Most recently, as President of Berkadia Investment Sales, Long led its apartment sales team that spanned nationwide. Berkadia Investment Sales was formed through a transaction that combined Hendricks & Partners, the nation’s largest privately held apartment sales firm with Berkadia, one of the largest apartment lenders in the U.S. (a joint venture between Berkshire Hathaway and Leucadia National).
Prior to the sale of Hendricks & Partners to Berkadia, Long was President of Hendricks & Partners where he helped grow the firm’s office network from a regional platform to a nationwide network covering 50 major U.S. apartment markets. Successful growth initiatives included adding a full capital markets capability, building a nationwide platform, developing market leading advisor support and technology systems, and helping to execute the subsequent sale and merger.
